About twelve years ago, I began my journey with paint. I have been creating all my life with fabrics, color, and design, but I have found that painting fulfills the creative part of me. I once read that one's painting style lies within oneself, and I believe that to be true.
When I first put brush to canvas, I was drawn to painting birds and animals. I live near the beach, and I am always observing the gulls, sandpipers, egrets, herons and pelicans that inhabit the marshes and coastline. The colors of the coast are stunning; the water, the marshes, and the light are all natural elements that amaze and inspire me. There is so much in the Charleston area to paint!
Always experimenting, I will continue to evolve. A few years ago I created, what I then called, my whimsical birds. They too have evolved. Now I like to call them "contemporary wildlife". You can see them on my more recent pages, such as, "Girls Day Out", "Tango", "Must Be Love", and pelicans titled, "Spreading the News".
